How to use ReforgeLite

by Olivia // April 15, 2014

ReforgeLite, downloadable here, is Skill Capped’s preferred reforging addon. It’s simple to use when you know how, and provides both an adaptable, highly flexible system, and a way to optimize your gear in just a few clicks.

  1. Setting ReforgeLite’s weights and priorities for your class
  2. Applying the Reforging to your Gear

To use it, download it here, then either use the automated installer or unzip then copy the folder you downloaded to your World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons folder. You will need to restart the game to get ReforgeLite to load up.

Setting ReforgeLite’s weights and priorities for your class

Go over to the reforging vendor, and click on him to open up the reforging panel. You will see something that looks very like this:

For now, don’t pay too much attention to the grid to the left, it’s the right hand side that we’re after. Starting from the top, there’s a drop-down arrow, with the word Presets next to it. All our Class Guides will provide reforging weights and a visual guide on how to set them up in ReforgeLite, so the presets shouldn’t be relied upon for too long. But, for now, open the drop-down. They will show spec and, in many cases, key options like haste breakpoints. Select the one you want to reforge to.
